    I wish this whole gun ban crap would hurry up and be done with. I'm not low on ammo and I have plenty for all my calibers. But I like to add to the pile a little every month. I've scored on some 9mm and 22lr once. One things for sure, America is stocked up on ammo! I can't believe how hard it is to find 30-30. I mean come on its 30-30! How much of that are you really going to shoot??? Its available in spots online but when you factor in shipping its just not worth it for 40-100 rounds of 30-30. I know the reloading comments are coming, but that is just not logical for me right now. Anyway just wanted to gripe after searching the internet in every spot I could think of for some 22lr or 223 hoping to score a fresh batch.

    We are ALL feeling it brotha. I have a feeling that this time, the crunch will be around for a while before it loosens up a little.

    It does suck though to have a couple thousand rounds of handgun ammo. And put yourself on a "no shooting" moratorium, not knowing when the craziness will come to an end. :-(

    No doubt. A few days ago my dad called me to say that he was completely amazed that when he went to get some ammo for his hunting rifle it was all gone. He doesn't use the Internet and even though he's followed the gun control mess he hadn't even realized just how bad it was. I've been on the lookout for him for a few calibers he needs like .300 Savage but the only single box I found was over $60 for 20 rounds which was insanity. I'm decently stocked but nowhere near where I wish I was.

    If anything, it made me get off the fence on a couple of purchases I was already considering. And also I have had to lighten up on my range trips...sux, but whatya gone do?..thinking about getting my bow restrung and start shooting sticks again:)

    I don't see it getting much better honestly. Maybe if congress doesn't pass any of the bs laws, but then you still have all of the crazy states trying to pass even crazier laws. The next four years will only give us more of the same from barry and his regime. bohica

    I know it's good for the Gun Manufacturers, but damn.... like it's been said, grabbing ammo is harder and harder = IF you don't want to pay a premium. :(

    On one of Chris Rock's stand up gigs (years ago), he said something very profound.
    " You don't need gun control.... You need Bullet control. Each bullet should cost $5000, cause you'd be damn sure your bullet hit it's target."

    Tell me about it! I found one box of Winchester .30-30 at Walmart yesterday and it was 25 bucks! Ten dollars over what it was a month or so ago....

    Feeling ya pain. Hunting season is over and its normally time to start up with pistol shooting. But instead I'll be sitting on my stockpile until this thing levels out. It's impossible to even find any .22lr.

    I got three for 16.50 the about two weeks. Picked up two more Sunday for 19.97. I walked up as the guy was stocking the new boxes. And I got the last two boxes. That is how quick it is going around here.

    Saw 30-30 in a LGS today along with plenty of 22 ammo. Didn't check on the 30-30 but 40 cal was 18.00 a box and 9mm was 12.00 a box and 45 was 21.00 a box. But this place usually stocks a lot of ammo. Picked me up a XDM 3.8 40C there today, was there last one.

    I have a decent stock of all my calibers except 22lr. I usually just buy a box of remington 525 pack when I get low. Well now I'm out and can't find any anywhere it's ridiculous

    Stopped by Adventure Outdoors after work today just for fun. Noticed that they had a couple large pallets of .45 Auto and were selling 1000rd boxes at exactly 0% discount compared to 50rd boxes. When I asked why no discount for buying in bulk the nice guy behind the counter gave me a simple answer, "Cause we never have or need to, it'll sell." Guess I cant blame them but I politely passed. Just figured this went nicely in the Glad when it's over thread.
